sucker chained out on me for a would-be ace, hole 1 at kenwood trails. second time this happened, darn slippery plastic . . . ridge is becoming more of my go-to for short drives under 240, but this thing covers everything out to 300. still kinda battling with the pa4, but it's winning the spot in the bag again.

Aced with my Opto Pure not to long ago. Decided to hang it up with the other ace discs and pick up a new sparkle Opto

Help Pure Freaks!

I currently carry 4 putters in my bag:

DX P&A Aviar (all circle putts, short straight approaches, shorter jump putts)
Opto Pure (anhyzer drives, straight with fade drives, long jump putts)
400 PA4 (tunnel drives)
ESP Zone (skip drives, skip approaches, forehands)

I've had a couple of occurances where my Opto Pure has slid thru the chains on a long jump putt. I love the Pure for these types of shots (similar stability and feel to my Aviar but much easier to throw longer) but the Opto sneaking thru the chains has gotta stop. Is Zero Hard a significantly easier plastic for the chains to "grip"?

YES.

opto is slippery. zero hard is much better at catching; it was my primary circle putter for a while along with a regular old zero for longer putting duties. you will have to get used to the putter not being as glidey.

sorry, had to go for a bit - you'll find the zero hard to feel like a completely different disc in hand too; much flatter, way lower profile. i personally really liked it.

Oh, maybe that's not what I want. I was looking for the same flight characteristcs (glidey, neutral, long for a putter) as a Opto Pure but one that the chains "catch" better. Is the Zero Hard not as fast/glidey?

it's still fast and it's still neutral and glidey, but not as much glide as the opto, which has more dome. it'll putt straighter since it's not as HSS/LSS. it's definitely pretty neutral. was just letting you know there are some differences.

my zero hard pures havent been that much different from the opto pures...the flat opto pures anyways. there have been some domey opto pures ive had that feel different...but all the zero hards ive had are flat. zero hard and opto pures have flied very similar for me when fresh...but of course the zero hard will break in faster, which i love. I have 1 opto i keep for straight as an arrow, then cycle 3 zero hard pures, always keeping one just for putting.

Try and find some of the EZE or the TM2 plastic. They molded up similar to the optos, and arent flat like the zeros

I have recently found that my Opto Pure is great for tight accurate drives where just the least amount of shank will hurt you badly.

They always release nice and clean. There are 2 holes here at one of my local courses where this disc just excels over any putter I have ever thrown.
